    1. How to Redirect (301) using a .htaccess file

    2. Yes, All your old domain link juice will come to your new website.

    3. A little of it will get lost.

    .

    You can either 301 the complete domain to a new domain? All/most juice (and visitors) will go to homepage/new target

    OR

    You can 301 every individual page to a specific page in the new domain? All/most juice (and visitors) of those individual pages will go to new specific page

    You can do your redirecting using your cpanel or .htaccess

    It depends on what you're trying to achieve.

    If you've got no use for the old domain beyond this, you might as well re-direct the entire domain.

    If you want to redirect specific pages based on their previous links/ranks then go for individual re-directs.

    @Ultralink

    Agree with you. My backlink profile is almost made on Home page. One last query.. If i re-direct the entire old domain to new domain home page. What about specific old pages they will get 404 error ? is it bad for new domain ? Or I choose redirect all old domain links to my new domain home page. ???

    Excuse the newbie (I am one) question but is there any way for Google to tell that you are using a 301 redirect? Have they penalized anyone in the past for using 301s?

    My initial plan is pretty simple:

    massive spam links --> 301 Redirect --> Web 2.0 Parasite #1 --> Another 301 redirect domain --> ClickBank Offer

    Following some of the strategies laid out on BHW, I plan on putting up a Parasite with a Clickbank offer. But rather than spamming the Parasite directly, I would prefer to hit a 301 first and point *that* to the Parasite. That way, if Parasite #1 ever gets taken down due to a manual review, I could just quickly switch it out with a new one, Parasite #2, without having to rebuild all the spam links. In addition, the Parasite goes to a 2nd 301 redirect which might initially point to an authority site (e.g. CNET) so that the Parasite passes manual review. Then later I would switch the 2nd 301 to point to a Click Bank offer.

    But my main worry is - can Google track such shenanigans and penalize you for it? Or are 301 redirects pretty much invisible to Google? If not, what can I do to mask the strategy?

    Any input much appreciated!

    A Short Answer to your question is "Yes, Google Can Track all your footprints"

    Simply use tiers to minimize the footprints.

    This can be done in cPanel but Google can still find you out and probably will.

    Wrote this in another thread, buy trying here as well:
    "Will redirecting an old domain with good metrics to a brand new domain mean that I will be able to avoid the Google sandbox when building links towards the new domain?"
